|Boucher Hill Lookout is currently (2016) staffed everyday through the fire season by dedicated volunteers. The structure underwent rebuilding in 2012 with new metal siding and a complete rework of the interior. This is the third lookout at this site with the first one a crude cabin built by the Forest Service in 1921. In 1934 a new building was put up by the CCC. The current building was installed in 1948. This lookout is on the National Historic Lookout Register #394. Since the lookout is in a state park you will have to pay a day use fee of $8.00 to visit. For visitors over age 62 it is $7.00.|
|This is how the lookout appeared in March, 2005. It was not in use at that time.|
|Boucher 2 benchmark near the lookout was placed in 1975. The original disk placed in 1939 was destroyed by construction of the parking lot. Datasheets:|
